The woman on the arms of Donald Trump and Billy Bush in that now notorious video speaks up for the first time on Twitter:
“My name is Arianne (R-E-on) ZUCKER (Zooker) and I am a strong, independent, hard working mother, business woman and partner to a great man. I have grown to learn that the words of others cannot effect the value of my self worth or define the content of my character. How we treat one another, whether behind closed doors, locker rooms or face to face, should be done with kindness, dignity and respect.”
“Unfortunately, there are too many people in power who abuse their position and disregard these simple principles and are rewarded for it. In understanding the magnitude of this situation, I choose to stand tall with self respect and use my voice to enrich, inspire and elevate the best of who we are as people.”

The comments were made on the set of “Days of Our Lives” during taping of an “Access Hollywood” segment about Trump’s upcoming cameo on the soap.
